Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE)
Deaths and injuries from Road crashes contribute significantly to the burden of disease. Globally, 1.35 Millions are lost each year and LMICs are more affected despite having the lowest share of vehicles. As per the WHO report 2018, Rwanda is among countries with high rates of road deaths above the Africa average. Speeding is one of the common cause of road crashes, hence effective speed management is expected to reduce road crashes and resultant deaths and injuries.
What are we doing about it?
Rwanda represents the first low-income African country to implement a comprehensive ASE system and sharing the lessons learned from their experience can facilitate implementation of ASE in other countries experiencing similar challenges of limited resources and desire to improve road safety. The objectives of the project are:
Comprehensively describe the processes of deployment of ASE infrastructure and operations in LMICs.
Develop impacts and cost-effectiveness model of ASE over time.
Evaluate the knowledge, attitudes and practices (KAP) related to ASE of road users over time
The project with be implemented in collaboration with Transport Injury Research Foundation (TIRF) under funding of the Global Road Safety Facility (GRSF) of the World Bank
